Management zones are comprised of rules that define which entities can be accessed within each management zone. These rules are built upon the powerful Dynatrace tagging engine for entities. In combination with user and group permissions, you can set up management zones to create multiple overlapping partitions in your environment to promote collaboration and security.
Create a management zone
Go to Settings > Preferences > Management zones.
Select Add new management zone.
Provide a Management zone name.
Create management zone rules governing which entities are part of and accessible within the management zone. These rules are built upon the powerful Dynatrace tagging engine. In the image below, you can see a number of rule examples that you can define to set up a management zone.
Select the highlighted tabs (Service, Application Entity, and Infrastructure in the image above) to see the Matching entities.
Assign access rights to management zones
After you set up a management zone, it’s time to define which user groups should have access to the management zone and at what level.
Go to your Accounts view. User and group permission controls are available when you sign in at https://account.dynatrace.com. You can also access Account settings from the User menu in the menu bar.
See How to apply management zones for details.
